NC Education Cloud Model

               Cloud-enabled LEA

Transition server, appliance, and network control infrastructure to the cloud

          Infrastructure Blueprint
•   Servers housed in Tier-4 data centers
•   24x7x365 monitoring and support
•   Service Level Agreements with teeth
•   Usage-based provisioning and billing
•   Tiered data backup and recovery
•   Near-real-time provisioning

     A Service Delivery Platform
• The NC Education Cloud is a service delivery
  platform for modern instructional and
  administration support systems
• Initial statewide services
  – Hosted i-series
  – MS Live@edu and Google Enterprise
  – Learning Management System (LMS)
  – Web collaboration
  – Identity management
       Services Guiding Principles
•   No state-managed source code
•   Single Sign-on enabled (via SAML for instance)
•   Open interfaces and API’s
•   Software-as-a-service is the default choice
•   Strict service level agreements

              The State will
• Conduct site surveys of LEA infrastructure,
  applications, and support
• Collaborate with LEAs to develop and
  implement a deployment and operating plan
  for the NC Education Cloud
• Deploy an NC Education Cloud infrastructure
  and service delivery platform

                  LEAs Will
• Incorporate the state infrastructure NC
  Education Cloud elements into technology
• Adopt the infrastructure blueprint
• Provide and support student, teacher,
  administrator access to LMS, web
  collaboration, and related tools and services

                  LEAs May
• Propose pilots based on existing or developing
  school, LEA, or regional models
• Request support related to pre-existing cloud-
  based service deployments
• Provide regional administrative and operating
  support for particular cloud-delivered services
